Product Focus: Tot Bots

TotsBots began after our second baby, Maia, was born in 2001. Having used disposables for three years on our first child, we headed down the cloth nappy route with fingers crossed as lots of people thought we were a bit mad to be using old-fashioned nappies (incidentally folk who had never used cloth nappies before!) Four months later having tried various brands of cloth nappies we were about to give up. I then decided to design and make my own nappies combining the best of both, the convenience of disposables with the comfort of cloth. Even I was amazed at how well my prototypes worked! Soon our friends wanted some, they told their friends, who told their friends and it wasn’t long before we were well on our way to became the thriving business TotsBots is today. We are still a family run business, led by myself and my partner Magnus. (The kids help out too, Kyle helps in dispatch during the summer holidays, Maia helps choose colourways for new prints and the youngest two, Darach and baby Stroan, give our products a thorough testing daily!) Our nappies have evolved hugely since the first towelling prototypes with the fairly recent addition of the Easyfit Birth to Potty to our range. We came up with the concept for this about 3 years ago and it took about 12 months to fully …

Product Focus: Bum Essentials

Bum Essentials was started by Adnan and Nora, parents of 4 young children under the age of 6. When their 3rd childre was born they starting thinking there had to be a modern cloth diaper available. Diapering was becoming very expensive. Nora searched and found the cutest cloth diapers. After she started using cloth diaper she realized her trash was cut in half and all the diaper rashes she had dealt with her first two children were non existent with using cloth. Nora wished she had used cloth diapers on her older two children because they had terrible diaper rashes all the time – not to mention the significant money savings. Motivated by her cloth diaper experience after a couple years she decided to get more involved in making her own cloth diapers. Nora had lots of ideas about how to make the perfect cloth diaper. As business owners they new what it would take to make a business work so they invested 9 months in planning and designing a cloth diaper! They worked hard on all the products and the design. Nora sought out to perfect the modern cloth diaper by including everything she felt was important in a diaper. The Bum Essentials Bumbino One-Size Cloth Diaper is similar to a hybrid diaper, but it was nearly a year before other “hybrid” diapers were on the market. Following is …

Momprenuer, owner of Kanga Care LLC, invents new product that proves her company is recession-proof!

One of our favorite manufacturers/diapers, Rump•a•rooz is receiving a deserved highlight in the press! Golden, CO – March 23, 2010 – In the heart of the recession, Kanga Care saw a 400% increase in their gross revenue growth in their 3rd year. This start-up company blossomed out of Julie Ekstrom’s living room while she packed and shipped orders out of her garage. Just 3 years after the first sale of her hand made invention, the company has moved into a warehouse/showroom in Golden and has given jobs to 4 full time employees. Kanga Care now ships their signature product, the Rump•a•rooz® One-Size Cloth Diaper, around the world to over 28 different countries. In a time where every penny counts, Kanga Care is saving families upwards of $3,500.00 per baby. The Rump•a•rooz® is a modern style cloth diaper that looks and functions just like a disposable diaper with the exception that it is re-usable. A popular parenting magazine reported that 43% of new parents are choosing cloth diapers for their family full time, 12% are cloth diapering part time. Julie, the owner of Kanga Care and 30 year old mother to 3, invented the Rump•a•rooz for her daughter who was severely sensitive to the chemicals in disposable diapers. “This was never my intention, it just happened. I created a solution to help my newborn baby girl and soon found other families …

Bamboo Baby Product Focus

I am Crystal, distributor for Bamboo Baby. I have carried a variety of cloth diapers during my 9 years of business and was thrilled to find the Bamboo Baby line from Dri-Line. I love the absorbency and softness of bamboo, and unlike many other bamboo products, I really love that the diapers are made in North America.The bamboo rayon and fleece are purchased through Green Textiles in the US and the bamboo fibers are Oeko-tex certified. As with any product, there are stages of development and I find that the current Bamboo Baby all in one is fabulous! Dri-Line Ltd has been making incontinent products for hospitals and nursing home for over 20 years. They are a fair labor manufacturer and have really worked hard to produce quality products. They have made diaper service quality diapers for years and began branching into bamboo just a couple years ago. Yasmin, the owner on Dri-Line Ltd, prides her business on providing green alternatives and found it only made sense to provide the same quality in home-diapering systems too! Why bamboo? Here’s what Yasmin has to say: When I was first introduced to bamboo fleece, I was impressed with the softness of the fabric, when I found that in addition to being deliciously soft and luxurious, bamboo fabric is also highly breathable, more absorbent than cotton(softer too), and naturally anti-bacterial. It seemed like …
